A singing collective for anyone who self-identifies as female, inclusive London-based Lips Choir have just announced their biggest gigs to date, with two nights planned at Clapham Grand on 14th and 15th November.
Talking about the importance of Lips Choir, Sally O’Connor from the group says:
“Feminist choirs are offering something that hasn’t really existed much before now – a space for women to take up space and create their own sound and to use their voices to make change in the world. There’s a lot of power and joy in a group of people coming together and singing…“
With Lips Choir having previously sold out The Coronet and performed at Bestival, Wilderness and The Royal Albert Hall, next month’s gigs will be celebrating their collection of songs Club Classics: The Lips Remix, and will treat fans to a brand new set that explores the history of dance music in sweet harmony.
Complete with a six-piece all-female live band and special guests including 4x UK beatboxing champion Grace Savage, these gigs looks set to be fun-filled, uplifting events to definitely put in the diary!
Of the event, musical director Jessica Maryon Davis explains:
“With this gig, we’re going big on all areas of dance music. We want to bring the Lips sound to everything from Acid House to UK Garage and give props to those varied voices which created the all-time club classics everyone knows and loves. Being a choir, it’ll add a different twist – people aren’t used to hearing up-tempo club tunes sung in choral harmony!“
Tickets are £15 (£8 for concessions) and the choir will also be raising money for WAST (Women Asylum Seekers Together). Tickets are available here.
